A baby shower should be a scene of feminine power and sisterhood. Women coming together to celebrate the impending arrival of a new baby and to spoil the mom-to-be with gifts and advice. Unfortunately, they often descend into a series of pointless and humiliating games, where you have to look at fake poop in a diaper and have your bump's girth measured. Then there's usually a question and answer session, where you may well feel that you're being cross examined while simultaneously enduring the infuriating questions people will ask at your baby shower.
The worst thing about the majority if not all of these questions, is that they barely conceal a judgmental lecture from friends and relatives about what their pregnancy, birth, and baby experience was like (and why yours should be exactly the same). If you can grin and bear some of these thoughtless queries, I think a baby shower can be wonderful. I mean, it's kind of hard not to feel special when you're the center of attention. Plus, people are usually very generous and there will be cake.
If you are faced with any of these rude and infuriating questions at your own shower, and it's taking away from the joy of the day, feel free to sound off. You can always use pregnancy hormones as an excuse, right?
